The proposed uniform education system for a common syllabus in Tamil Nadu would be implemented only after proper discussions with educationists and public, Minister for Higher Education K. Ponmudi said here today.
The government had taken a policy decision to introduce ‘Samacheer Kalvi’ (uniform education system) from classes one to six from next academic year (2010 -11) after integrating all boards (State, Matriculation, Oriental and Anglo-Indian) on a trial basis, he said declaring open newly-constructed classrooms and laboratories of the Government Arts College here.
Discussions would be held with educationists and public before finalising the syllabus under the new system. “No schemes would be a success unless it got public support,” he said.
The scheme, if found to be a success, would be extended gradually up to SSLC level, he said.
As per a recent study, Tamil Nadu topped in the country in moulding engineering graduates with about 1.60 lakh youths successfully completing engineering courses annually, he said.
